Hiring a new employee is an exciting time. You get to introduce them to their new co-workers, show them around the office, and help them get settled in at their desk. But unless you take onboarding one step further, things will go from exciting to overwhelming very quickly.

The infographic below -- created by Onboardia, a company dedicated to making employee orientation and training easier and more productive -- shows the importance of giving new hires more support during onboarding. Some highlights include:

  • Only 32% of organizations have formal onboarding programs.
  • 76% of employees want on-the-job training during their first week.
  • 56% of employees said they’d like to have a buddy during onboarding.
  • 56% of employees said they received ineffective or no training during onboarding.
